Happy Summer! July Book Club Meeting

Our next book club meeting will be at 6 o’clock on THURSDAY, JULY 19 at Paula’s house on East Avenue.  We’re reading The Summer Before The War, by Helen Simonson.

Here are a couple of reviews of our book, from NPR and The Washington Post.

And if you’re feeling up to it, here’s a reading guide, with discussion questions (!!!!???!!!) from the publisher, Penguin/Random House.

What else is everyone reading? One week into summer vacation, I’ve finished or started 3 books: Prey, by Michael Crichton (quick thriller, literary equivalent of a bag of potato chips); Florida, by Lauren Groff (weird, humid, with snakes); and The Overstory, by Richard Powers, which is amazing and I totally recommend it–but be prepared, you’ll need a good guide to trees and/or the Google to look up all the amazing trees you’ll discover in this novel.  I’ve never read anything like it.

What are you reading these days?
